Inside Frankie Dettori's amazing mansion that you can rent for a whopping £15,000 A MONTH | The Sun

STEP inside Frankie Dettori's amazing mansion – which you can rent for a whopping £15,000 A MONTH.

The world's most famous jockey, 52, is retiring at the end of this year and plans to downsize to a London flat and go travelling with wife Catherine.

But he's not giving up this astonishing, seven-bedroom Newmarket mansion altogether.

He is planning to rent it out for the eye-watering amount – giving racings fans with deep pockets the chance to live like he did.

The property features a stunning outdoor pool and there is even a 'sulking room'.

Dettori said he goes there to decompress with a big glass of red wine – and swears the dark red walls are 'good for the hangover'.

The 11,000sq ft home comes with almost two acres of Mediterranean-style gardens – a tribute to Dettori's Sardinian roots – and more than three acres of paddocks.

There is also plenty of garage space, previously used to house Dettori's collection of 'frightening' Ferraris.

Dettori and Catherine, 49, bought the original property for £570,000 in 2003.

The 'bloody expensive' renovation they have carried out took about 15 years all in and was part-funded by the £2.15million sale of their old 15-acre, six-bedroom house in 2015.

Inside there is also a cinema room, a grand reception hall with sweeping marble staircase and an enormous family room and kitchen/living area.

There are six en suites and walk-in wardrobes to go with the seven bedrooms, a games room and big study.

Zoe Everett, from estate agents Jackson-Stops, said: "This is an exceptionally rare opportunity that will appeal to tenants right across the UK as well as overseas, who have a keen love of horses, animals, sport and the great outdoors.

"The location lends itself particularly well to anyone working in tech or life sciences, with easy access to both Cambridge and London.

"Being a contemporary country house, this property uniquely reflects the needs of today's modern family, being highly efficient without compromising on beauty and presence."

The property will be available to rent from September – a month before Dettori's final ever ride in Britain at Ascot's Champions Day on October 21.

Speaking to former jockey pal Jason Weaver, Dettori recalled what he thought about the house when he first moved in.

He said: "You know what, it looked small on paper.

"But now… Jesus Christ, why did I pick such a big house?"
